I'm sitting by the side of a river
Underneath the pale blue sky
I've got no need to worry, I'm in no hurry
I'm looking at the world go by

Just sitting in the midday sun
Just soaking up that currant bun
With no particular purpose or reason
Sitting in the midday sun

Everybody say I'm lazy
They all tell me get a job, you slob
I'd rather be a hobo walking 'round with nothing
Than a rich man scared of losing all he's got

So I'm just sitting in the midday sun
Just soaking up that currant bun
Why should I have to give my reasons
For sitting in the midday sun?

Oh, look at all the ladies
Looking their best in their summer dresses
Oh, sitting in the sun
I've got no home, I've got no money
But who needs a job when it's sunny, whoa whoa

I haven't got a steady occupation
And I can't afford a telephone
And I haven't got a stereo, radio or video
A mortgage, overdraft, a bank loan

The only way that I can get my fun
Is by sitting in the midday sun
With no particular purpose or reason
Sitting in the midday sun

Oh, listen to the people
Say I'm a failure and I've got nothing
Oh, but if they would only see
I've got my pride, I've got no money
But who needs a job when it's sunny, whoa whoa

Everybody thinks I'm crazy
And everybody says I'm dumb
But when I see the people shouting at each other
I'd rather be an out of work bum

So I'm just sitting in the midday sun
Just soaking up that currant bun
With no particular purpose or reason
I'm sitting in the midday sun
